2 Chainz commands a net worth of $12 million as of June 2023, according to Celebrity Net Worth. His primary income source emanates from his flourishing career in the American music industry. Beyond his musical achievements, he has carved a niche in brand endorsements, entrepreneurial ventures, and strategic investments.
Born as Tauheed K. Epps on September 12, 1977, in College Park, Georgia, United States, details about his birth parents remain relatively private. Tragically, in 2012, he lost his father, marking a significant personal milestone. Epps excelled both academically and athletically, graduating as the second-ranked student from North Clayton High School. Despite youthful missteps, he embarked on a musical journey that would define his future.
Initially forming one-half of the Southern hip-hop duo Playaz Circle, alongside fellow rapper Earl Conyers (aka “Dolla Boy”), Epps earned early recognition with the release of their 2007 hit “Duffle Bag Boy,” featuring Lil Wayne. His solo career reached a turning point with a record deal from Def Jam Recordings in 2012. The debut solo album, “Based on a T.R.U. Story,” released on August 14, enjoyed significant commercial success. Following this, he released his second studio album, “B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time,” on September 11, 2013. He continued to release a series of successful albums before establishing his own record label, “The Real University Record Label,” in 2022.

Beyond music, 2 Chainz has made commendable strides in the business arena. He introduced a line of Dabbin’ Santa sweaters and launched a collection of hoodies named CEO Millionaires. Furthermore, he acquired a minority ownership stake in the College Park Skyhawks, the NBA G League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks. Notably, he ventured into the solar energy sector, investing in Heliogen, a $2 million endeavor.
Endorsements and Charitable Endeavors
2 Chainz has inked deals with reputable brands such as Adidas and Beats by Dre. In addition to his business ventures, he’s demonstrated a commitment to philanthropic causes. Through his T.R.U. Foundation, he generously gifted a five-bedroom house to the Stenson family in Atlanta, showcasing his dedication to uplifting communities in need.
